    • "Journals in the fields of tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceuticals research insist that vested interests are identified (Casswell, 2013). Indeed, the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal) 'will not consider for publication any study that is partly or wholly funded by the tobacco industry' (Godlee et al., 2013). In gambling studies it is virtually impossible to detect corporate interests, even in research published in peer reviewed journals. "

    ABSTRACT: This review covers global deaths, prevalence, consumption, tobacco economics, obstacles to tobacco control and tobacco control action in the tobacco epidemic. It highlights that 80% of smokers now live in low-and middle-income countries, and addresses the economic drain of tobacco on both national economies and smokers and their families. The tobacco epidemic, in spite of different populations and stages of development and different economic systems among countries, is comparable globally, with the same products, similar harm, identical obstacles and intervention measures needing to be taken. It shows that much progress has been made over the last half century, especially with the adoption of the World Health Organisation Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Many millions are now covered by the WHO MPOWER measures, yet less than one in five of the world's population are covered by smoke-free areas, bans on all forms of advertising, promotion and sponsorship, optimum tobacco taxation, packet warning labels and cessation programmes at the highest, optimal level. There has been an increase in global funding for tobacco control, yet national funding remains woefully inadequate.
